Pink Christmas

There's nothing like being on your own, the mistress of your own little palace. And what fun to decorate for Christmas the first time. Emily was so excited to get out all the vintage trees and ornaments she's been collecting and gussy up her apartment for the holidays that I just had to share. Here's what she's done so far.

A shoe tree full of Barbie shoes shares space with pink disco balls.

The pink Cadillac is a reminder to Santa.

Marilyn has her spot front and center.

What's a Christmas tree without flamingos?

The silver tree with pink ornaments is in the very girly bedroom.

Now let's peek in the bathroom.................there are bottle brush trees with tiny pastel balls sitting on a snowy shelf.
Here's the vintage tree picked up at an antique shop in Walhalla, South Carolina. It's sitting on an old rattan bar cart in the living room.
Those are real Shiny Bright ornaments just like we used to buy at Woolworth's and a few special new ones, too.
Flamingo lights on the garland.
Even the boxes fit in with the decor.
Merry Christmas from Old Florida!

Cute, cute, cute. I remember decorating my first tree. I cut out paper snowflakes, strung fresh cranberries and popcorn onto dental floss and went to town!
